Sunny skies and warm temperatures brought in customers to Creekside Park in Rushford, eager to meet the returning and new vendors. Two events, a flower giveaway, sponsored by Root River Floral, and a homemade greeting card class, sponsored by Perfect Page Scrapbooking, provided additional interest.

Additional vendors signed on for the season include Beth George, Burdey’s Café, Crooked Pine Soap, Labrador Home and Garden, Metz’s Hart-Land Dairy and Honey, The Granary, and Wind Turbine Orchard.
